INTRODUCTION
TECHNICAL FEATURES
This air conditioner consists of two units: the internal unit is designed to operate inside the room to
be conditioned; the external unit is installed outside the room.
The two units are connected by a special hose,
approximately 13 ft. (3 metres) in length. This
hose contains the freon tubes, the electrical wiring
and the condensation discharge tube.

Setting up
The sheathing that connects the external to the
internal unit may pass:
a) through a slightly-open window or door;
b) through a small hole 2.16” x 0.98” (2.5 cm x
5.5 cm) drilled in the lower part of a door or in
a window frame by using the frame provided.
c) through a small hole in the window bracket. If
you have a sliding window, place the bracket on
the window sill, extend the bracket fully within the
window frame, fit the bracket by turning the wing
nut and lower the window onto the bracket after
having passed the sheathing through the slot.
With the wing nut it’s possible to use the window
bracket also for sliding windows.
6
If you have a sliding door, use the additional set
provided in order to extend the accessory to the
desired length; joining the two parts, adjust the
total length according to your needs then, fit the
bracket with the relevant nuts, close the door and
connect the hose.

Setting up
USE OF RAPID COUPLINGS
In addition to the methods described above, the
sheathing that joins the external to the internal
unit may also be drawn through a hole (about 6
cm. in diameter) drilled in a wall linked to the outside.
ø2,4"
6) Disconnect the condensation tube from the
rubber holder.
7) Loosen the shield’s two self-threading screws
and disconnect the electric hook-up unit.
11
,8"
In this case, the hook-ups with the external unit
must be disconnected as follows:
1) Remove the plug from the electric outlet;
2) Remove the handle by loosening the two
screws and then slipping off the facing.
SHEATH STOP
ELECTRIC
HOOK-UP
SHIELD
U BOLT
3) Remove the U bolt by loosening the two
screws.
4) Remove the sheath stop by loosening the two
screws.
5) Using a 24-version wrench, unscrew the union
on the coupling. At the same time, hold the
end of the flexible tube tight by using a 21-version wrench. Repeat this operation for the second union using a 24- and a 19-version
wrench.
The path of the connecting sheath should be as
straight as possible, without sharp curves or
kinks.
To re-connect the detached ends of the sheath to
the internal unit, you must repeat operations 1
through 7 in reverse order, being careful to
observe the following precautions:
• Before drawing the sheath through the hole in
the wall, you should wrap the threaded ends of
the speedy couplings with duck tape or the like
as a protective measure.
• Fit the upper two cooling junctures into the two
lower ones and hand-screw them several
turns while checking to be certain they are
well-fitted, and then tighten them with the
wrenches used earlier.
• After having hooked up the two cooling junctures, tighten the U bolts.
• Check the grip on the cooling junctures by
wetting the joints with a little soapy water.
No bubbles should appear.
Caution:
We recommend that the disconnecting and
connecting of the rapid couplings be carried
out only by qualified technicians.

Setting up
INTERNAL UNIT
Install the internal unit inside the room to be airconditioned. This is usually done near a window or
at least close to an outside wall.
The internal unit must be placed “on the level”,
with the help of the castor-stops provided. No
obstacles should block this unit’s in-take (suction
grille, rear part of the unit) or out-take (outlet grille,
front part of the unit) areas.
For temporary installation it is possible to hang the
external unit as illustrated in the drawing. In this
case, use the included straps by attaching them to
the eye hooks. Before inserting the eye hooks
remove the rubber plugs.
EXTERNAL UNIT
The external unit may be placed on a terrace or
balcony, in which case the brackets need not to be
used.
The external unit can be attached to a wall with the
accessories included as follows:
1) Attach the bracket to the
wall while taking care to
place it as indicated in the
drawing. Use the included
template located on the
plastic cover in order to drill
the holes.
2) To fix the support blocks
to the external unit
remove the two screws
already inserted in the
holes. Then screw the
support blocks with the
included M4mm screws
while taking care to place
them so that the hole for
the screws is on the upper
side.
3) Attach the external unit to
the bracket by means of
the M6mm screws.
8
The external unit may be installed above or at the
same height as the internal unit, on the condition
that the difference is no more than 5” (1.5 m.)
The suction and air-delivery portions of external unit
must not be blocked by obstacles of any nature.
The distance between the back of the appliance
and the wall must be six 2 1/2” (6) cm.
The condensation which forms while this appliance is running (summer time operations) is disposed of by evaporation from the external unit.
If the humidity is too high (in special cases), you
must use the drainage coupling provided to get rid
of condensation. This device must be mounted on
the bottom of the external unit (see drawing) after
the rubber plug has been removed.
We strongly recommend that you protect the
external unit from rain, snow, direct sunlight and
water dripping from the roof.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
•
Check that the power supply voltage is the same
as the one indicated in the rating label.
In order to insure low-cost operations, protect
the room from direct sunlight by drawing the
curtains and/or by partially lowering or closing
the shutters or blinds
Important: If you need to use an extension
cord, please be sure to use a heavy
duty extension cord (minimum 14
gauge).
Before connecting the Pinguino to power supply,
make sure that all switches on the front control
panel are in the OFF position.
Connect power cord found in storage compartment at rear of Pinguino.
Draw the curtains
Replacement of the power cord must be carried out by qualified personnel.
A LAST LOOK AT THE ROOM
There are several precautions you should keep in
mind so as to get the best use out of your air conditioner:
• Close the doors and windows in the room to be
air-conditioned (except for installations, in
which one window must be left partially open).
Lower (or partially close) the shutters
•
•
•
Do not place objects on top the air-conditioner.
Do not block the suction and air delivery areas.
Make certain there are no heating sources in
the room.
Note: Before connecting this appliance to the electrical circuit, make certain that all the buttons
on the control panel are switched off.
Close the windows
Close the doors
Do not cover
IN THIS WAY, YOUR AIR CONDITIONER IS
READY TO WORK, so now let’s familiarize ourselves with its controls.
Do not use outdoors.
This appliance is equipped with a safety system which prevents the compressor from turning on
until at least three (3) minutes have elapsed since the appliance was last turned off.

The timer is in effect, an electric clock and works
only if the plug is connected to the power supply.
Whenever the plug is disconnected or there is a
power failure, the programmer stops (the clock is
then “slow”) and must be re-set.
The unit can be used in either programmed or
non-programmed mode.
4) Select the desired function as shown in the
chart overleaf.
The unit will now switch on and off each day
at the selected times and the Timer ON/OFF
pilot light will be on.
Note: To override the programmed operating
times, simply press the ON/OFF key.
NON-PROGRAMMED MODE
1) B TIMER button must be pressed
2) Select the desired function as shown in the
chart on the following page.
For technical reasons, the temperature is not expressed in degrees but by a line increasing in thickness.
We therefore recommend that when starting up the appliance, the thermostat be turned to maximum
(Pos.“Coolest”). When the desired temperature has been reached move the thermostat slider slowly
away from the maximum cold position until the appliance is switched off by operation of the thermostat.
In this way the appliance has been programmed with the exact temperature degree required, which is
then maintained automatically by the thermostat

Cleaning and maintenance
MAINTENANCE
Always pull the plug from the electrical outlet
before beginning any cleaning or maintenance
operations.
For safety reasons, never wash the air conditioner
with water.
CHECKS TO MAKE AT A SEASON’S
BEGINNING
Check to make certain that the power cord and the
electrical outlet are in perfect condition and that
there is a suitable grounding system.
Give strict observance to all installation norms.
CLEANING THE UNIT
WORK TO BE DONE AT A SEASON’S END
Clean your air-conditioner with a damp cloth and
then wipe it with a dry cloth.
Precautions:
Never use gasoline, alcohol or solvents to clean
this appliance. Never spray it with insecticide or
similar liquids, because the paint might then peel
off and the plastic portions might lose their true
shape.
Turn off the air-conditioner.
Clean the filter and dry it before putting it back in
place.
Cover the air conditioner with a plastic bag to keep
the appliance from getting dusty.
CLEANING THE AIR FILTER
•
•
If the air filter gets dirty, it will be difficult for the
air to circulate and the air-conditioner will lose
much of its efficiency, thus leading to about an
8% increase in electrical consumption. For this
reason, it is a good idea to clean the filter
Remove the air filter as shown below.
Filter
•
12
Use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust on
the filter. If the filter is very dirty, dip it in warm
water (of less than 40° C.) and rinse it several
times. After having washed the filter, let it dry
completely before putting it back in place.
